Description:

This page provides a set of context-rich physics problems on conservation of energy and conservation of momentum. Each context-rich problem is based on a real-world situation, and includes both information that is relevant to solving the problem and extraneous information. Strategies for problem solving are not explicitly provided. Each problem is formulated so it is too difficult for one student to solve alone, yet not too difficult for a group to master. This resource is based on the research results of the Minnesota Physics Education Research group. See Related items on this page for a link to the full collection.
